A head to toe assessment involves assessment of the 11 body systems including Neuro, Respiratory, Circulatory, Integumentary, GI, GU, Reproductive, Muscular, Skeletal, Endocrine, Lymphatic/Immune systems.
One of my most popular articles has always been the Head to Toe Assessment.
Student nurses and nurse educators have used this page quite often, and I have posted it on [UPDATED LINK] ANewNurse.com today.
I have added a few recommended books at the bottom of the page for further reading on assessment skills for nurses.
